(March 11 to March 17, 2022)
Easter Edition

Welcome dear readers to the latest issue of the Weekly Gazette! Here in the Gazette, we give you the news in brief of what occurred in the past week as well as provide any news happening in Save-Point itself

Official Area
We had plenty of reasons to celebrate this week, mainly due to the number of birthdays that came and went. First this week were the birthdays of Crono, ShinyToyGuns and ChouChou, which was later followed by the mass birthday collective belonging to Alpha-Mad, fallenravenlyn, Zexion and Spock. Later on, finalholylight, albertcprice and Sicand had enjoyed some icing covered confectionaries. And after that, the birthdays of BigHa, Tumen and Vaccaria came and went. And it wasn't long after that before we got to celebrate the birthdays of ThePrinceofMars and Ezyilnetz. Cake being shared was fine, but it's fun when you can get presents and that is exactly what Fenriswolf had done. And before the week was up, the birthdays of Albert-Chamomile and jajajaj312 had come and gone.

General Chat
Apparently, dealing with a lack of inspiration was on the mind of kyonides. Meanwhile, he was curious if anyone watched the Bruce Lee movie, Way of the Dragon.

Incidents, shocking, subtle and satisfying were in this week's News of the World, whether it is another freeze of Russian assets because of the Ukrainian Invasion, the cover up of President Biden's dog attacking staff, or Israel having a successful test of a long-range anti-missile system. After his purchase of 9% stock of Twitter, Elon Musk fell under a lawsuit for not disclosing his stake in time. John Durham's investigation showed the CIA thought the Trump Russia collusion story not plausible, information Michael Sussmann wanted dismissed for his trial. Subway shooters, Syrian secret prisons, and the loss of Gilbert Gottfried were among other articles within this week's news.

Tech Talk
Be wary of online scams, that's the advice you will get from this week's News of the Cyber World. This time, it was a retured nurse who was scammed, now losing $43,000 and her part-time job from bitcoin scammers from India who used Malware to lock her work computer.

Games Development
Development Discussion
If you like to keep up with your fellow colleagues on their work, or let them know how you fare, feel free to step in and share What's up as an RMers. Currently, DerVVulfman has been spending time on a central pop-up window for a tactical system, the premise is it shows 'armies' attacking one another after characters in the map engage. First, it was nothing more than he generating two characters on the screen, but he later was able to introduce battle animations, damage pops, multiple soldiers for each army and more. As a humorous warning, kyonides found a comedy series at Anime Planet which he suggested be a model what not to put into anyone's game. Meanwhile, Remi-chan continued work on her game, providing a video of two of her heroes encountering a malevolent power that must be extinguished. The last of the minor quest arcs for one of her characters, she's now halfway through the final part of another heroine's sub quest.

Material Development
Scripts Database
A new productive tool was created by DoubleX for those using either RPGMaker MV or RPGMaker MZ, his Event Text Extractor. For those that wish to be able to proofread their game or obtain the dialog so it could be read without the editor online, you can use this plugin to extract your game's text for later review.

Script Requests
When kingray100 found that DerVVulfman answered his call for a Basic Enemy Counterattacks script, he gave the werewolf praise at all the effort that was put in.

Creativity Section
Music and Audio
If searching through the various pages in his Sound Image site didn't thrill you enough, Eric Matyas is now Sharing His Original Music by supplying zip files of his higher-quality Ogg music divided by categories. One could acquire the over one hundred tracks of Puzzle music in one zip file, or an astonishing two-hundred and fifty Fantasy pieces in another. Even with all that, Eric still had time to compose a new work entitled "Country Music" which you may enjoy. And remember, it is all free with the simple requirement that you give him credit and recognition of his site.

Well, that's it for this week.
